3.75/5 rDev -4.1%
Big Beer night and this kicked it off
a good looking pint pale amber, clear and full on thick white head
nice citrus notes on the nose
tasted like a fairly standard bitter, okay the hops were slightly turned up
but not that much
good easy drinking beer but considering just HOW good cask beer can be
and how distinct Original Boddies was in it's day and the biting brews of Dobbins a bit run of the mill IMHO

A_Golden straw hue with a nice white cap. Plenty of lace
S_Mild aroma of toasted wheat and a bit of fruitiness
T_Taste is similar to the aroma but much stronger. Mild toasted wheat up front with a strong hop wallop at the end. Grass and earth notes predominate with a bit of pine.
M_Medium body w fairly aggressive carbonation which promotes the hippiness
O_very nicely done. On the stronger end for the style hop wise but a nice change of pace.

Handpump halfpint at the Harp.
A: Clear gold body beneath a finger of creamy ecru foam that towers above the glass's brim, recedes slowly, and leaves some solid lace. Excellent.
S: Hoppy indeed, in a spicy, herbal, piney kind of way. Very sharp. Some husky malt as well. Good, not great.
T: Starts out with spicy hops, then mellows out with a nice wave of dry, bready malt, and finishes with powerful bitterness. A little astringent.
M: Medium-light body, low carbonation. Ok.
O: I honestly expected more out of this beer, having had good experiences with other Dark Star offerings, but this one was only a little above average for a session bitter.
